We will start with making a necessary beauty product for every day life. This of course is deodorant. To make a natural stick deodorant, you will need to first gather a few materials. You will need 4 ounces of cornstarch, 2 ounces of baking soda, 1 ounce of liquid chlorophyll, 2 ounces of vodka, 2 ounces of distilled water and 8 ounces of beeswax. You will also need about 10 to 15 drops of your choice of oil. Choose from honeysuckle, rose, coriander, or any other of your favorite essential oils. Mix all of the ingredients except for the beeswax into a bowl. Stir thoroughly. Next, melt the wax on top of a double boiler over low heat. The next step is to remove the wax from the heat and add the other ingredients. Blend well. If the wax thickens too much to be workable, then you can heat it again. As the mixture cools, add the liquid chlorophyll and essential oils. Be sure to do this before it hardens. The last step is to pour the mixture into molds and let harden. After they are hardened, you can remove them from the molds and store in a tightly closed container.

Transfer the mixture to a container. After shampooing your hair, massage the conditioner into your hair, leave it on for a few minutes, then rinse thoroughly.
